As the future landscape of live events continues to be unknown at the present time, we’re always trying to come up with creative solutions for our clients to allow them to still engage with their audiences and build brand loyalty. With that in mind, we’d like to introduce our Virtual Photo Booth offering, aptly named.. the Virtual Booth.
The service is just what you’d assume by the name, a “virtual photo booth” that allows guests to take a photo (or upload a photo already on their device) from their phone or laptop and have it entered into a branded frame. Then, an AI based background removal (similar to what TikTok and Zoom uses) gives the a image a green screen effect where the guest is cut out and a designed background is visible. We can create animated effects as well to provide a bit more uniqueness to the image. This all happens within a branded interface which can contain call to action elements to help promote your brand or event.
One of the key aspects of live events is the experience of sharing moments with friends, and a lot of that is lost with virtual events as we all sit in front of our laptops. However a virtual photo booth is a great way to still get that FOMO aspect and a community building element, especially with event specific galleries to allow people to share their personal virtual event experience. And with our ability to take Virtual Group Photos, friends, teams, and co-workers can virtually pile into the same photo, even if they are on opposite ends of the country (or opposite ends of the Earth).
Besides the standard functions of a photo booth — custom designs, virtual “green screen” effects, sharing, and galleries — the Virtual Booth system can also include the following elements:
Animated effects and sequences can be added to the overlay or background (or both!) to create a dynamic final result that users will want to share.
For brands looking to gather data from users, a custom survey can be inserted within the workflow to accomplish just that.
Virtual Group Photos
Can’t hang out with your friends, but want a photo with them? This unique feature allows users to take a photo of themselves and add it to a “sticker gallery”. When another user takes a photo, they can add a photo of anyone in the gallery to their photo, creating a virtual group photo.
For event planners and brands, one of the trickiest things about hosting virtual events and campaigns is engagement. Will people actually participate? Well, we all know people love games and prizes, so the Contest Mode taps into that by presenting a virtual “scratcher” at the end of the session where they have a chance to win a prize. Don’t have any prizes to give out? We can handle production and design of branded giveaways, and even facilitate all of the distribution while you sit back and let users enjoy your Virtual Booth activation.
